Words by Mary B.C. Slade

1 Peter 2:21
"For even hereunto were ye called:  because Christ also suffered
for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:"

          Sweetly, Lord, have we heard Thee calling,
          "Come, follow Me!"
          And we see where Thy footprints falling
          Lead us to Thee.

            Chorus
            Footprints of Jesus,
            That make the pathway glow!
            We will follow the steps of Jesus
            Where'er they go.

          Though they lead o'er the cold, dark mountains,
          Seeking His sheep,
          Or along by Siloam's fountains,
          Helping the weak:

            Chorus
            Footprints of Jesus,
            That make the pathway glow!
            We will follow the steps of Jesus
            Where'er they go.

          If they lead thro' the temple holy,
          Preaching the Word,
          Or in homes of the poor and lowly,
          Serving the Lord:

            Chorus
            Footprints of Jesus,
            That make the pathway glow!
            We will follow the steps of Jesus
            Where'er they go.

          Then at last, when on high He sees us
          Our journey done,
          We will rest where the steps of Jesus
          End at His throne.

            Chorus
            Footprints of Jesus,
            That make the pathway glow!
            We will follow the steps of Jesus
            Where'er they go.
